Forbo Flooring Systems
Forbo Flooring Systems has improved its genuine Health and Safety Executive (HSE) compliant safety collection, STEP, offering new on-trend colours and designs to give more freedom in creating beautiful interiors, without having to compromise on slip resistance. But that’s not all; clients can now have any design they wish digitally printed onto the surface of STEP safety flooring.
The new STEP collection, which consists of 11 individual ranges and covers all relevant slip ratings, offers true design freedom, while providing peace of mind to specifiers and end users that it is genuine safety flooring, having been tested to EN13845, which guarantees lifetime slip resistance performance.
So what’s new? We see the introduction of a brand new Steel design that has a metallic shimmer running throughout the surface, which is ideal for retail, leisure and hospitality interiors. There are also brighter Surestep laguna colours, which extend application areas beyond pure wetroom and digitally printed options, such as ‘ice cream’ and ‘moon’ for that real ‘wow’ factor, as well as a bespoke option.
The STEP wood range features a new embossed surface structure for a more natural look, while Surestep original contains 22 on-trend colours and the palettes of Safestep R11 and R12 have been refreshed to colour match each other and the R10 version.
In addition, for spaces that require both slip resistance and superior acoustic performance, Forbo’s STEP decibel range now provides a selection of 12 contemporary colours across wood, stone and all over designs, all of which achieve 17dB impact sound reduction.
What’s more, Forbo has also launched a new integrated wetroom solution for both floors and walls. It is a compendium of colours from Surestep laguna, three new Surestep star barefoot designs, which include visible chips to add a deeper dimension, and eight Safestep aqua colourways, which all complement the tones of its new Onyx+ wall covering.
Janet Lowe, Head of Marketing UK and Ireland at Forbo Flooring Systems, commented: “A few years ago, we recognised that the industry desired safety flooring that had contemporary aesthetics, rather than the industrial looks that were often associated with this type of safety performance floor covering. As such, we refreshed the STEP collection to include unique STEP crystals to provide fresher, brighter shades and designs.
“This year, the new STEP collection will provide specifiers and end users with even more design options - especially with the new digital printing capability - to cater for a variety of sectors. We’ve also colour matched elements of the STEP collection with other products in our portfolio, such as Sphera homogeneous vinyl, sustainable Marmoleum and flocked Flotex, to ensure specifiers achieve maximum synergy when it comes to creating large flooring schemes, from entrance to exit.”
